How many times do this standby light flashes? These flashes are fault indication, called blinking codes. From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the number of flashes. If you wish to get more detail about these blinking codes to Sony TVs, check the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

  1. Replace the tuner with exact type and number. After replacement, in some cases, you might have to enter its service mode options to set the AGC voltage properly. If you are no experienced to do this, contact any experienced service technician to do this work.

The most heavy set ever made by Sony----lots of possible reasons from a bad fuse--to a bad D board (deflection board) and a major hassle to just get it apart----These were rather expensive sets but now most of them are being recycled and replaced, if you have to have it fixed it will have to go to a shop etc which will just add to the repair costs.

If not a fuse a home service call usually will be a waste of time and money.

The last one of these we had used in our shop took four months to sell and sold for 250 dollars----a far cry from the original cost of this set when new.

I too would like to know the solution to this question...we are having the identical problem and Sony doesn't seem to know how to fix it. Although, the picture from the DVD player is perfect, the pictures for cable & video games are terrible. Very frustrating!

Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

MAKE SURE NO SPEAKERS WITH BIG MAGNETS ARE ABOVE OR NEAR THE TOP OF THE SET--magnets can cause "purity" problems.

The set has a built in coil to correct this every time you turn the set on.

IF THE SET IN THE MOVE FELL FORWARD, IT MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE SHADOW MASK INSIDE THE TUBE.....

TWO REASONS FOR YOUR PROBLEM: COIL IN SET NOT WORKING FOR SOME REASON---ROTATE SET LEFT AND OR RIGHT AND SEE IF PURITY CHANGES OR BECOMES GOOD.

IF SO A MANUAL COIL CAN BE USED (CALLED A DEGAUSSING COIL) TO CORRECT IT--TAKES 5 SECONDS.


SECOND: SHADOW MASK IN TUBE (SCREEN) IS DISLODGED BY MOVE----THESE ARE VERY HEAVY SETS AND THE MASK IS EASY TO DAMAGE.

The mask is inside the tube and perforated with hundreds of tiny openings that line up with the phospher coating (stripes if you look close at set with it on) if mask got dislodged in move--damage is permanent.

If changing north,south, east or west position of front of set corrects it mask is good.

Unlike others who have bid I am answering this for free, if I told you something you did not know rate this free solution as very helpful.

Probably just a bad lamp. Look up the LED status codes for your particular model. Five flashes will indicate a particular problem, and usually it's the bulb.
